All Justin Timberlake Movies Ranked

Cause for alarm: Justin Timberlake has only been in a few Certified Fresh movies in his career, projects that have really hit with critics – we hope he has a second job to fall back on.

For now, Timberlake will just have to be content with the fact he’s been in some of the really good flicks of the 2010s, like David Fincher’s Best Picture nominee The Social Network, or the Coen brothers’ wry and sly take on the folk music, Inside Llewyn Davis. And no one can blame Timberlake for not being careful in cultivating his movie brand, making a few sex comedies (The Love Guru, Friends With Benefits), throwing in a few sci-fi risks (Southland Tales, In Time), and sweetening the stew with family movies (Yogi Bear, Shrek the Third).

Timberlake’s latest film, his first in three years, certainly falls in that last category: Trolls World Tour, which took the extraordinary step of skipping theatrical and going straight to on-demand. With the movie added to this list, we’re sync as we look back on all Justin Timberlake movies ranked by Tomatometer!

Runner Runner (2013)

#16

12%

#16
Adjusted Score: 14.637%

Directed By: Eric Brevig

#15

The Love Guru (2008)

#13

Wonder Wheel (2017)
31%

#13
Adjusted Score: 39.149%
Critics Consensus: Wonder Wheel gathers a charming cast in an inviting period setting, but they aren't enough to consistently breathe life into a Woody Allen project that never quite comes together.

Directed By: Woody Allen

#12

In Time (2011)
36%

#12
Adjusted Score: 41.234%

Directed By: Andrew Niccol

#11

Southland Tales (2007)
39%

#11

Directed By: Richard Kelly

#10

Shrek the Third (2007)
42%

#9

Bad Teacher (2011)
45%

#9
Adjusted Score: 50.843%
Critics Consensus: In spite of a promising concept and a charmingly brazen performance from Cameron Diaz, Bad Teacher is never as funny as it should be.

Directed By: Jake Kasdan

#8

Directed By: Robert Lorenz

#7

Alpha Dog (2007)

Directed By: Craig Brewer

#5
#5
Adjusted Score: 73.091%
Critics Consensus: Friends with Benefits adds nothing new to its well-worn rom-com formula, but the chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis is almost enough to carry the movie by itself.

Directed By: Will Gluck
